Hello! I want to do a tour that starts in Akureyri on June 1. I plan to travel up to Akureyri on May 31 and head back to Reykjavik on June 2. What is the cheapest way to get there and back? I have looked at flights as well as car rentals but they each run about $300 which is more than I want to spend just to get to a place.
I know there is the public buses but I can't seem to work the website enough to see if they are running when I need them. The website says that Reykjavik buses start June 8 but when I use the trip planner it lets me see a bus for May 31. I also can't figure out what time the earliest bus would run.
Would the public bus work or is there another mode of transportation that will get me to Akureyri cheaply? Also, would it be easy to find someone to carpool with? I'm open to this but since I'm booking a tour I need to be able to be sure that I will get there.
